MPLS Network

Private network designed to support customers, service providers,
data centre operators and carriers.

Your customers’ need to be continuously connected wherever they’re located so connectivity delivered through the communication network must be quick to implement, fast, reliable and cost effective.

5i’s Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) network was designed to support the connectivity needs of end users, service providers, data centre operators and carriers. Our network is flexible, high-performance, resilient, stable and secure, and one of the best connected in the UK.

5i’s network connects the UK’s large, carrier neutral data centres, the ‘tele-house’ data centres where all network operators and carriers route traffic. Currently available in more than 60 UK data centres, our network is continuously expanding to include further existing and new data centre locations.

An any-to-any network, it provides interconnects to a vast range of service providers and internet exchanges, removing the need to be physically located in the same facility. This enables us to create a bridge between our customers’ sites and a broad spectrum of data centre options in terms of connectivity.

5i’s MPLS network delivers advanced technical standards, as well as commercial flexibility. Because we own the entire network, we offer contract options not offered by our competitors, including elastic bandwidth, expedited services and short-term commitments
